“England’s deepest lake, Wastwater, lies just below; its highest peak, Scafell Pike, towers above. The setting of this famous climber’s inn is bleak but magnificent, and the traditional interior, though fairly simple, is more comfortable than you might imagine. There is a panelled dining room, two bars adorned with a fine collection of climbing photographs, and a cosy, family-style sitting room. The food suits hearty appetites, especially the breakfasts.”

“Welcome to the world-famous Wasdale Head Inn - the birthplace of climbing - dramatically surrounded by England's tallest mountains, making it the finest base for walking and climbing.
The Inn is situated at the head of remote and unspoiled Wasdale, and if you are seeking the superlative this is where you will find it. England's highest mountain, the deepest lake, the smallest Church, and the original world's biggest liar can all be found in this tranquil corner of the Lake District.”
